3 day Military Diet


It's time for me to start losing weight (sigh) to get ready for our cruise this summer (hip hip hooray)!  Since I'm not really into exercise (I know you couldn't tell since I have a super model's body) I decided to try a quick & easy way to lose a lot of weight fast.  I'm going to try the 3 day Military Diet.

I am going to try to stick to this diet exactly as it's written.

Day 1
Breakfast - 1 c. black coffee, 1 slice of toast w/ 2 Tbsp. peanut butter & 1/2 grapefruit.
This was only slightly difficult because I couldn't have my standard 2+ cups of coffee full of cream & sugar.  2 Tbsp was more peanut butter than I would've normally put on toast, but ate it anyway.  Black coffee wasn't as bad as I was expecting.  Yummy 1/2 grapefruit.

Lunch - 1 c. black coffee, 1 slice of toast & 1/2 c. tuna
coffee for lunch...doable but me no likey.  1 can of tuna=1/2 c.  Seemed like a lot but I ate it all, making an open face sandwich with my 1 slice of toast.

Dinner - 3 oz. any meat, 1 c. green beans, 1/2 banana, 1 small apple & 1 c. vanilla ice cream
I weighed my raw chicken & seasoned w/ salt & pepper.  Had green beans, fruit & ice cream exactly as written.

I got a massive headache midway thru the day & it lasted until I went to bed.  Probably lack of caffeine, lack of sugar &/or lack of food...at least the amount of food I'm used to eating.

Day 2
Breakfast - 1 egg, 1 slice of toast & 1/2 banana
Boiled an egg and sliced it on top of 1 slice of toast.  I wasn't sure if I'd like it but it was pretty yummy.  Any leftover egg that didn't fit on the toast was eaten separately...very slowly.  Ate the 1/2 banana.

Lunch - 1 egg, 1 c. cottage cheese & 5 saltine crackers
1 c. of cottage cheese is a lot too!  I was really busy this afternoon & only had 15-20 minutes to eat before heading out again.  I ate about half of the cottage cheese, some of the boiled egg & 3 crackers.  Once I was home around 2pm, I ate a few more bites of the cottage cheese but then put the rest back in the container.  I ate the rest of the egg & the other 2 crackers.

Dinner - 2 hot dog wieners, 1 c. broccoli, 1/2 c. carrots, 1/2 banana & 1/2 c. vanilla ice cream
After a long day of running the kids around to ballet & cheer, we got home at 7pm.  It was too late to really eat a full meal, so I steamed 1 c. broccoli & cut up 1 hot dog to eat with it.  My carrots were bad so I threw those out.  I didn't look at the menu before I finished up, so I forgot about the ice cream.  

Headache lasted into the 2nd day, but I took Excedrin & it seemed to do the trick.

Day 3
Breakfast - 1 small apple, 5 saltine crackers & 1 slice cheddar cheese
Seriously...why do I eat in front of Maggie.  Part of my apple & cracker went into her belly.  I ate most of it & topped the crackers w/ the cheese.  Pretty yummy.

Lunch - 1 egg & 1 slice of toast
I had a boiled egg sliced thin & topped the toast w/ it.  I ate VERY slowly to make it last.

Dinner - 1 c. tuna, 1/2 banana & 1 c. vanilla ice cream
1 c. of tuna is just way too much...that's 2 small cans.  I added a little fresh squeezed lemon & ate most but not all.  I skipped the banana, mostly because I was full, but of course, ate the ice cream.  I didn't measure the ice cream, but instead just scooped 2 scoops into a bowl.

No headache at all today!  Woohoo!!!

Day 4
Time to weigh in!  drum roll please.........

I LOST 5.2 POUNDS!

I was hoping I would be one of the ones to lose 10 pounds when they say "lose up to 10 pounds" but I'm not complaining.  I think I'll do the diet 1 more week & see what additional results I see.
